Julaine Farrow Museum


The Julaine Farrow Museum is open to the public and showcases the history of the treatment of individuals living with mental health concerns in Wisconsin. It is located on the grounds of Winnebago Mental Health Institute (WMHI) in the house once occupied by the WMHI superintendent. There are 10 rooms of exhibits on two floors. Each room features artifacts and objects used at WMHI for diagnosis, daily cares, treatment, and other work. The displays also include drawings and photographs. Visitors learn who worked at WMHI, how treatment for mental illness has evolved since WMHI opened in 1873, and what daily life was like for patients and staff over the years.
